SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 28, 2018
Exit Reality, a San Francisco-based VR company, today announced its partnership with KLEAN Treatment Centers, Inc., a leader in providing high-quality addiction treatment and rehabilitation services, to develop a pilot program utilizing virtual reality for psychiatric treatment at select KLEAN Centers.
With over 120 full-time staff and nine facilities across the West Coast, including both inpatient and outpatient rehab services, KLEAN Treatment Centers has established a reputation as a leader in addiction treatment. Exit Reality helps companies delve into the use of VR by providing specially designed infrastructure, technology and configuration expertise. Through this joint endeavor, KLEAN’s dedicated team of medical professionals will work closely with Exit Reality to develop and pilot a series of therapeutic VR treatment options.
“We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with Exit Reality to expand our offerings in the mental healthcare space,” said Andrew Spanswick, MSW, CEO of KLEAN Treatment Centers. “In the near future we will be offering our patients, and eventually the wider market, a new therapy tool which has shown significant progress when applied across the spectrum of mental disorders.”
The two companies expect to announce details of the pilot program and to deploy it in KLEAN Treatment Centers in Oregon, Washington and California by the end of the year. Exit Reality plans to leverage its existing relationships with the top content producing agencies to license and potentially even develop proprietary content through its partnership with KLEAN.
“Exploring new applications of virtual reality for therapy is an exciting venture for our team,” said Yoni Keonig, co-founder and co-CEO of Exit Reality. “Through this collaboration with KLEAN, we will be piloting new ways to transform the patient experience and help improve psychiatric treatment outcomes through the strategic application of VR in healthcare.”
